The Hawaiian legacy of using highly-refined printing techniques to tell stories is signified by the ʻohe kāpala. UHIP trains students to write and to find their own unique, scholarly voice that is informed by rigorous research and attention to aesthetics. This element of our logo also resembles the ihe (spear), as UHIP equips students to work productively with Indigenous communities laboring for justice and collective well-being.
Undergraduates in any major or specialization can benefit from courses in Indigenous and Hawaiian politics.
MA students can take a few courses or earn a formal specialization in Indigenous Politics.
